The President and the dead President

It certainly shouldn't come as any surprise that Bush is going to skip the state funeral of Gerald Ford. You knew this was coming after those interviews with Ford came out posthumously, interviews wherein Ford expressed disapproval of Bush's invasion of Iraq and said that he was "dumbfounded" when hearing of the NSA warrantless wiretapping program. Part of this, of course, is simply Bush's frat boy demeanor, pissed that anyone would question or criticise him. But it also evinces Bush's laze and inability to recognise that there are things more important than his vacation plans. I mean, if Bush couldn't get off his Texas cow-pie ass when told that bin Laden was determined to attack the United States, it should be obvious that the state funeral of an old dead president -- a critic at that -- was going to be anything that would distract Bush from his beloved brush.

I wonder if the president sitting at the time of Bush's funeral will return the favour. By then we should well know how that ol' Bush "legacy" turned out. If it is going to be anything like most expect, that future president won't want to be anywhere near that coffin.

I think, I would hope anyway, that the president at the time of the Decider's death would show he is a much better person than this bonehead.

On another topic, I'd like to wish you and your readers a happy and healthy new year.
